Now that spring is (almost) here, Monkey and I are thinking of flowers! Okay, maybe he is thinking mostly of trucks and robots, but he has at least noticed that the trees are starting to bud as the weather is getting warmer.
So when I needed an easy craft for our recent Ayyám-i-Há party, I thought it would be fun to have the kids make hand print flowers.
I knew it had to be easy, since they wouldn’t want to sit for long, but I still wanted it to be a pretty keepsake for the parents. The result is this hand print flower coloring sheet (click on the image below to download).
The quotation around the edges is a popular Bahá’í prayer for children. I just love the beautiful imagery of children as flowers in a meadow.
To make the craft, trace the child’s hand on the page to complete the flower then let them color it in as they wish. Ta-da! Easy peasy pretty craft, my favorite kind 🙂
Are the flowers blooming where you are?
